Mental Health and Wellbeing
Leeds City College is committed to the health and wellbeing of all our students. If something is going on in life that is causing you stress or you are feeling unwell you can talk to your tutor. Your tutor will be able to offer advice and help you get further support if required. College have specialist Counselling and Mental Health Officers. If you would like to talk to one of them you can ask your tutor, email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a first contact form on the Student Intranet. They will talk things through with you and help you make a decision on what help you need and where you can get this.
We also have a wellbeing drop in where you can find out information about mental health and wellbeing and where to get support. For more information and this and the college wellbeing team, please go to the student wellbeing app here: http://lcc-wellbeing.appspot.com/
